Death & Cake

Dead Good Cake & Chat

on Saturday 22nd February from 11:00 at The Purple Raven Gallery, Crowenstown, Delvin

A chat about life’s end over coffee and cake may not sound like everyone’s cup of tea, but it can be a way to get people talking about a subject we can’t escape and that is often avoided.
Talking about it can only be a good thing: not only does coming to terms with your own mortality mean you’re more likely to live life to the full, being open about it means we can support each other, our families and this talk at the gallery is aimed at proposing the possibility of setting up a monthly Death Cafe (location yet to be revealed) where people drink tea, eat cake and discuss death. The aim is to increase awareness of death, to help people make the most of the (finite) lives. Some related themes that can be suggested on the day are;

  • The use of Lament to support Grief.
  • The concept of preparing for your future departure using a Death Doula.
  • The different ways to plan your final ceremony, including burial.
  • Your sense of the Afterlife – Where do we go?Why not come and see if this idea resonates with you!

The space will be lead by Tanya Bryan, a trainee Death Doula, Grief worker and budding Lamenter.

Donation box towards the upkeep of the gallery & coffees and cake.
